Most Oregon women had been voting citizens since achieving woman suffrage in 1912. This presentation will detail how and why Oregon women and their allies achieved voting rights in 1912, and how various Oregon women contributed to the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.

She is the author of Mobilizing Minerva: American Women in the First World War (University of Illinois Press, 2008) and Oregon's Doctor to the World: Esther Pohl Lovejoy and a Life in Activism (University of Washington, 2012).
